It sounds like there's a long list of books not to buy if you're looking for a turn-by-turn account of the Eurovelo-5 route, and this book belongs on that list. This is a good description of travelling through Europe by bicycle. It is inspiring (I think that's why my wife hid it!).. Looking forward to Andrew's next trip!

Andrew is a teacher who decided to put his summer holiday to good use by cycling from Reading in Berkshire, through France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland and into and through Italy. That is 3,300km following the Eurovelo 5 route, alone, unless of course you include Reggie, his bike. Now as I am the sort of person who names her cars and even her central heating boiler, I love that Andrew named his bike and it really added an extra something to the book for me.

How interesting can a blog about somebody’s summer holiday be. Can a whole book of get on bike, ride, get off bike, sleep, repeat really hold your attention?

Well…….yes. This book is an inspiring and interesting read which I breezed through in no time.

I see there is a follow up coming and I will definitely be in for round two.

A lovely little travelogue, by an initially quite nervous cyclist taking his first real long-distance ride, from Reading to the south of Italy. It's rather pooterish at points, and sometimes heavy on detail, but all the same it was a delight to read: I breezed through it and immediately found myself dreaming of one day setting off on all manner of similar two-wheeled adventures.
Tom Cunliffe
A remarkable achievement in cycling so far in such a short space of time. But perhaps not written by the most interesting of people - the book is a little, dare I say, "pedestrian" and lacks sparkle.

I enjoyed this book. It made me feel that I need to get off my butt and go on my own adventure.
